Favorite Things

Flowers are definitely one of my favorite things.
Other things going on, so have not been roaming around taking pictures very much lately. So dug around in my photos and came up with this mosaic of some pics I took of the flowers in my courtyard a few weeks ago, before the heavy rains the end of April and first of May. Most everything has perked back up, except for the Azaleas and of course they won't re-bloom - well one of them may or may not bloom a little more when Summer starts to wind down. The Phlox and Iris are done for the year also.
Click mosaic, then click again to enlarge.
I will be linking up with "A Few of My Favorite Things Saturday" hosted by Laurie @

Be sure and visit Laurie to see what she, and the other participants have to share with us this week. Thanks Laurie for hosting again this week.
Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!

Hi Glenda. You made a beautiful mosaic of all of your lovely flowers. Irises are my favorites. My azaleas are done for the season. I need some more color now.

Glenda, this mosaic is so pretty. I really wish azaleas bloomed longer. I love when they first bloom, but they are gone way too quickly. Hope you have a great weekend. laurie

Glenda-Your mosaic is beautiful! That rain came at the wrong time--I don't think we got to enjoy the azaleas as long as usual. My hyngrangeas are just beginning to kick into full bloom! Have a good weekend. Hope all your work is going well!

That is really pretty Glenda!
I love azleas too but they sure go fast! I love your courtyard area, that looks charming! Have a nice weekend. We're supposed to hit 90 on Sunday. The first time this year.

Hi Glenda,
What a charming mosaic, I would love to see your courtyard in person. You have some lovely flowers growing. So, so pretty.
I can see why they are favorites of yours.
Enjoy your weekend!

Oh, these are so beautiful! I am so jealous that your flowers are in full bloom! We haven't even got any flowers beginning to bloom here yet!

I love seeing new flowers come into bloom but saying goodbye to the fading flowers is so sad. To think another whole year will have to pass before we see them again.

Lovely Spring mosaic Glenda!

Your flowers are so beautiful. I hope you get plenty of summer blooms. I saw your previous post. Mmm! I love sauerkraut with sausage, and mashed potatoes as my side. Mmm, mmm, mmm. Now I'm gonna just have to go out and get me some. Thanks for reminding me.

Thanks for stopping by and your kind comments. It's really been hard for me to get interested in doing anything inside the house, all I want to do is be outside in the yard. I guess it has something to do with the bad winter we had. Your flowers are so beutiful, I never get tired of looking at them. Thanks for sharing all your beautiful plants.

Hi Glenda, your courtyard is filled with such pretty flowers. I also love all the statuary that you use - great mosaic!
